In one of the most unexpected revivials, it seems that once again we can have a damn fine coffee as it has been revealed that early 1990s cult series, Twin Peaks will be coming back once again for a limited run.
The show which ran on ABC for two seasons/30 episodes from 1990-1991 and generated a prequel movie named Fire Walk With Me in 1992 will air for nine episodes on Showtime in 2016. Creators David Lynch and Mark Frost will pen the episodes for the cable station and the limited series will be a direct continuation instead of a remake. Both Lynch and Frost have also confirmed that the revived series will bring back classic characters, though it has yet to be confirmed who exactly.
I've seen bits and pieces of the show and with SyFy UK currently doing a run of the series, I'm going to make sure I'm fully up to speed as without this series influence, there would be so many shows that wouldn't have made it on television. This was also the series that brought people like Kyle MacLachlan and Sheryl Lee to public attention and even had David Duchovny in an early career role as well.
